Crafting Bug

In Princess Sparkley's History lesson for school this year one of the famous American's we learned about was Theodore Roosevelt. And since it was history for Kindergarteners, we made a construction paper Teddy Bear. She was seriously distraught that she wasn't going to be able to sleep with it, etc. So I told her we'd made her a bear out of fabric and stuffing when we got a chance. So a few months ago she picked out the fabric, and yesterday I got around to making it for her. I chose that over letting the kids paint. I admit, I'm horrible about letting the kids paint. It makes a huge mess and then I have paper with wet paint on it drying on every flat surface of the house. So here are our creations. A teddy bear, and for Buddy, a Thomas train named Thomas Orange Juice [our last name].

Wow! You are sewing up a storm. Your apron looks great and the teddy bear is so cute. But not as cute as that Baby X pictured above. He is so adorable.
